“The Wisdom of God”

The Wisdom of God

Thou, O Christ, who wert tempted in all points like as we are, yet without sin, make us strong to overcome the desire to be wise and to be reputed wise by others as ignorant as ourselves. We turn from our wisdom as well as from our folly and flee to Thee, the wisdom of God and the power of God. Amen.”-A.W. Tozer (“The Knowledge of the Holy”)

I have a friend. Her name is Faith. No, she is not an allegorical figure; she is a genuine friend who’s name is Faith, and she does have faith. She has taught me that “it is not the size of one’s faith that matters, but the object of one’s faith”. She quotes that from time to time. Faith enjoys reading books by Tozer. I have read one, but it was so many years ago, and I’m not even sure if I read it all the way through.

Faith likes to write down inspiring quotes and share them with her friends. a few years ago she wrote the above quote on an index card and I put it on my bulletin board where I can keep it in view. I hope it blesses you.

    The Tozer quote did indeed bless me. It’s something that I come up against quite often. God bless you and Faith, and your faith in Jesus!

    God is amazing, and you amaze me. I have been have been having a little trouble recently finding both the words and the time to post. Then I will see that you wrote something to me, or I will just get on WordPress and read your posts and my heart will be warmed and I just can’t keep from smiling. I thank the Lord and I thank you.

    Love, Theresa
